MediaPump is a family of open system MPEG-2 transport stream platforms especially suited to connecting high-speed synchronous MPEG-2 multi-program interfaces to PCI bus based open system platforms.
- MPEG-2 to PCI Gateway
- By connecting PCI based servers directly to a broad array of MPEG-2multiplexer, encoding and transmission equipment, MediaPump serves as a gateway for integrating end-to-end digital broadcast systems. MediaPump is designed for supporting MPEG-2 server applications, and has been successfully deployed in Ad insertion, Pay-per-View and other DVB to IP applications.
Supports Professional Interfaces
MediaPump supports a wide range of vendor specific proprietary and DVB compliant interfaces, including most parallel serial interfaces used within the MPEG-2 digital media marketplace. It offers a full range of input/output MPEG-2 transport streams, multiplexing and splicing functionality. MediaPump splices and multiplexes MPEG-2 single program transport streams on-board in real time, into a multi-program transport stream. The ability to install multiple boards in the same server together with on board processing allows MediaPump to scale well with the needs of intensive applications.
